A man was having an affair with an Italian woman

For several years, a man was having an affair

with an Italian woman. One night, she confided
in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to
ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a
large sum of money if she would go to Italy to
secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to
raise the child, he would also provide child
support until the child turned 18.

She agreed, but asked how he would know when
the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told
her to simply mail him a post card, and write
'Spaghetti' on the back. He would then arrange
for the child support payments to begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to
his confused wife. 'Honey', she said, 'you
received a very strange post card today'.

'Oh, really? Let me see...' he said. The wife gave
it to him and watched as her husband read the
card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written: 'Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.
Two with meatballs, one without. Send extra sauce.'
